Most companies will tell you whether of not you passed the interview. Not with this recruiter at Microsoft. After a few rounds of phone interviews, I stopped hearing back. I waited for a week and decided to reach out. She did not share the decision and ignored all my emails.

    Phone interview followed by On-site interview. The hiring manager asked if offered the job can you join by date x. I said I cannot as I have y weeks of notice period as specified in my application CV. Can you offer me some extra time to join? He said no as a certain budget will expire if the position was not filled by date x. I was very disappointed but played along through the interview.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juni 2018 bei Microsoft (Reading, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Telephone interview with HR followed by a technical Skype video interview which covers your understanding of .Net through to your feelings about open source & security policies of large organisations. This would have been an ideal opportunity for Microsoft to filter out candidates that had not recently used very extensive Azure and products such as Dynamics CRM at the depth they require, yet they passed me through to the face to face process and wasted my time further.

    An on-site interview takes place during a specific "recruitment" day on which they process many candidates quickly. I was asked to prepare a presentation on Microsoft products, you get about three days to prepare if your life can spare it.

    I was left in reception far longer than I would ever consider leaving an interviewing candidate at my company, but what would I know? I'm a dev manager for a small outfit not a corporate.

     The “logistics” section tells you to prepare a 25 minute “talk” followed by QA and bring your own laptop (not sure why they naturally assume everyone has a laptop) I recommend you ignore the “logistics” section as I wasted an entire Saturday preparing a slide based talk for the exact time they specified and practiced with my other half to get the timing perfect. Also ignore the bit where it tells you not to introduce yourself as they won't have read that bit and may take a disliking to you, I suspect that did not go well for me.

    On the day they wanted to treat it more like a discussion with two guys firing quite cynical 'knowing' questions at me every time I spoke, with the excuse that it was "role-playing as a dev team they might deal with" but derailed it completely as stopping to answer the questions or go back to a previous slide they wanted to pick holes in took up all the time. Just felt like lazy interviewing and quite disrespectful to candidates that have literally just arrived at Microsoft. My impression was they were very corporate, and it wouldn't be a nice place to work.

    They delighted in stopping me if I even mentioned anything they didn't feel was relevant to their vague memory of the spec (which they admitted they neither had or read recently).

     I was unhappy to have taken a day off and traveled to Microsoft to be treated in a manner I considered unprofessional. I wasted time preparing a hands-on demonstration using Azure which they didn't want to see as there was no time left which I had little control over. The questions were quite cynical and there was some muttering and laughing at my slides and criticising. This would not be a good interview for someone who was unable to infer this hidden expectation from the logistics section of an interview preparation document, for example, I am quite capable of hiring someone with autism but Microsoft would not be IMHO.

    As I had to give the presentation first, that just left a bad taste in my mouth. They said that this was normal as their customers are quite unpleasant to them. I've worked with dev teams world-wide and we all have challenging customers but only corporate mentality can expect to use it as an excuse for a confusing ambiguous interview technique.

    The later technical interview was good and the guys handling it were professional, but I was completely phased by the presentation debacle so could not concentrate. Expect the standard corporate white board and practice communicating architecture visually. Enjoyed the business interview too.

    Had no interest in working for Microsoft following the presentation experience and won't be recommending it to any devs on my teams now or in the future.

    The feedback was that I was nervous during my presentation and lost eye contact in my business interview" at one point" so make sure you stare those suckers out to the end.

    Positive response from the initial recruiter.
    Very helpful in giving an overview of MS benefits and overall compensation. Also helpful in setting a potential asking salary range.

    Passed the first technical interview, given over the phone. Interviewer was great. Had great insight into the Company and the job. Very willing to share what he knew. Technical questions covered a range of programming topics. Most of the questions were reasonably easy for someone with a few years programming experience. A few questions were a bit off the wall, as in "I don't even have a clue". However, on many of the far out questions, the interviewer indicated that almost no one ever gets those answers correct.

    Face to Face was originally supposed to happen within a couple of weeks. Things kept getting postponed.
    Eventually made it to Face to Face.

    Travel accomodations were excellent. Microsoft does know how to impress candidates.

    First tech interview seemed to go well. No real tough questions.

    Interview with the hiring manager was a disaster. Either they already had someone picked out and the F2F was just a required formality or their was a terrible breakdown between the recruiter and the hiring manager.

    I would have had no problem if their was any indication that I was not selected because other candidates were better. And it would not suprise me if there were better candidates. But the F2F with the hiring manager never even got off the ground. Not even close.

    I had worried to death over knowing technical information but the manager was concerned with business value. Technical knowledge was not a factor.

    I asked what the interviewer meant by "business value" and the answer was vague at best.

    Best as I could tell, business value had to do with saving the client millions of dollars within the first three months. Very little explanation of how this savings was actually implimented.

    The screening and the technical phone interview were arranged quickly and within couple of days I was notified that I am going to the Finals for 1 on 1 interviews.

    Out of 4 interviews 3 were really face to face and one was over the phone (to my surprise). I started with the phone interview and from the first question I felt that something's not right. I almost felt that the interviewer was asking me questions without paying attention. The interviewer was constantly putting me on mute. In two occasions he forgot to un-mute leaving me for prolonged time to wonder what the heck is going on. The questions were best practices around a scenario, business value, "Why do you want to work for Microsoft?", nothing technical etc.

    The actual face to face interviews went much better. They would start with a complex scenario that probably comes out of a real customer situation and they would ask what would you do. There will be no follow up questions, so it is important to start big and dive into technical details, you will not be asked. The rest of the interviews were questions around my experience in technology and most importantly in consulting. Consulting experience with large customers is essential apparently.

    Many of the questions expected that you explain how are you going to approach different stakeholders such as CTO, CEO, Dev manager and developer.

    I received the results after two long weeks. The hiring manager went on vacation the biz day after the interview, which for me personally was a turn off. By the time they called I already have mentally moved on.

    The feedback from the recruiter was that I was too specialized in one product line and not across the whole MS product line and that I did not dive in technical details in the scenarios. Considering that I clearly stated my experience this sounded as a really lame excuse. Then he added that they had 5 candidates and two internal candidates. At this point he proposed that I apply for another position they had opening for.
